Eurovision 2023: The Swedish Representative, Loreen Makes History!

Must Read

Eurovision 2023 has given its verdict. The singer Loreen, representing Sweden, won in Liverpool, this Saturday, May 13, 2023.  One year after the victory of Ukraine with the group Kalush Orchestra, the United Kingdom hosted the 67th edition of the famous song contest because of the war. Throughout the evening, whose slogan was “United by music”, many winks and references have highlighted Ukraine and its culture, including the presence of Julia Sanina, a Ukrainian singer in the animation alongside Alesha Dixon, Hannah Waddingham and Graham Norton. Eurovision 2023 also opened with a performance by the group Kalush Orchestra, who came to sing “Stefania” which won the contest last year. But there was only one question on the fans’ lips: who won Eurovision this year?

11 years after her victory with “Euphoria”, Loreen tried again with “Tattoo” to represent Sweden, and she was the big favorite from the beginning. “I don’t want to parasitize myself with this. I want to keep in mind that my goal is to deliver something to the audience. I’m just here for that. So I self-discipline and cut myself off from everything else, because I fear that energy. If I start thinking about losing or winning, it will distort my energy. This is not about me. For me, competition doesn’t exist” she confided in an interview on Purecharts, with humility. Not surprisingly, it was Loreen for Sweden who won with “Tattoo” which scored 583 points, coming first in the international jury vote with 340 points, and second in the public vote with 243 points.

By reaching number one, Loreen makes history by being the first female artist to win Eurovision twice! In the process, Sweden gets its seventh victory, eight years after Måns Zelmerlöw with “Heroes”, and thus equals the record of Ireland. The Eurovision 2024 will be held in our Swedish friends, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of ABBA’s victory with “Waterloo”!
